The Lie about Broadband

"The word “broadband” is like the word “radio”. If you ask people about radios they’ll think about Howard Stern (or NPR?) before they think about oscillators.
I keep pointing out that broadband is an industry not really a technology anymore. And it’s the antithesis of the Internet yet because we managed to communicate despite it people want more of whatever it is."
"The tragedy, as my short comment implied, is compounding this misunderstandings by locking us into legislation that reinforced the biggest lie – that the telecom industry delivers that Internet from the great hydro-Internet plans located somewhere or another."
